Serving the 55+ Communities

Whether you’re a veteran looking to relocate to a place with more amenities or a retiree searching for a great vacation home, The Real Estate Center of West Palm Beach, LLC. is here for you. Since 1990, we have been selling and renting properties in West Palm Beach. Century Village has been so underserved, so, in December 2017, we decided to open an office right in the middle of the community. Folks who are looking for a retirement home or a place to escape to during the winter rely on us to help them secure the property of their dreams.

As real estate professionals, we take an innovative approach to our customers' needs. Our relationship with legal, financial, management, selling and leasing professionals gives us a unique position to guide your transaction to closing. The Real Estate Center has answers to your relocation and investment questions. Based on our decades of experience we identify your challenges and opportunities to formulate a strategy to keep our clients ahead of the curve. We have agents who speak Russian, Yiddish and Spanish. We have the tools, talent and relationships to provide a successful experience for our customers.
